Getting following error when start service of OpenErp

The instance's SvcRun() method failed Traceback (most recent call last): File "win32serviceutil.pyo", line 806, in SvcRun File "OpenERPServerService.pyo", line 71, in SvcDoRun SystemExit: 1 %2: %3

Please try the following steps ( And retry starting the server after each one):

1) Change the port number in your config file (server.socketport)
2) Remove any #'s before and after the server.socket
host variable in the config file
3) Try changing the value of server.socket_host to "localhost". If that does not work, try using your server's ip address

I face the same problem with version 7.

Here is what I did and generated the problem:

I copy modules to Addons folders, but don't restart Openerp 7 service and it still keep working. But when I restart Openerp 7, the service stop immediately. I track in the system and find the same error log record.

Don't know how to fix it. (Just a simple copy & paste module to addons, but it make all my ERP stop)

Exact same problem, using the Hotel Management Add-On
